Impression Obsession/Flower Soft blog hop!

Are you ready for some fun?

The Impression Obsession and Flower Soft Design Teams are playing together for this hop!

If you just happened upon the blog hop at my blog, you'll want to go to the beginning at the Flower Soft Blog, There are prizes to be won along the way, and we'd hate for you to miss anything!

As you make your way through the hop, you'll want to make sure you comment on each and every post... there will be 4 prize winners chosen randomly among the blogs! The prizes are two $25 gift certificates from Flower Soft and two $25 gift certificates from Impression Obsession!

The prize winners will be announced on the Flower Soft Blog and The Impression Obsession blog on Wednesday August 18th, so be sure to check back and see if you won. Good luck!

For my card, I used some new releases from Impression Obsession's winter collection. This little snowman image is called "Hanging the Garland," and I paired him with a new sentiment, "Count Your Blessings". The image is colored with Neopiko alcohol markers.

I filled his garland with Flower Soft (this is Ivory Flower Soft that I dyed with Lettuce dye ink - see this post HERE for instructions!), and decorated it with a few adhesive rhinestones. The turquoise background panel is photo paper, sponged with Ocean Depth chalk ink. I stamped the Flourishes Cover-a-Card stamp in Brilliance ink which was quickly buffed off with a tissue, and then overstamped with the Ocean Depth again. The card base is crinkle cardstock.

For your next stop on the hop, take a Peek into Debbie Seyer's Stamping Room!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
